Berkeley Nucleonics is offering an upgrade to the SAM 940 Isotope Identifier for radionuclide identification of Cs-134, Cs-137 and I-131 to address a growing concern for screening meat, fish, eggs, milk, and water.
Eagle-A includes specific features to identify radioactive contamination resulting from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant leak of radiation into the local environments. The upgrade allows an additional mode for less technical users to screen specific concerns without compromising analytical spectroscopy stored in the instrument memory. Furthermore, the firmware allows compliance with federal guidelines for contamination monitoring already in place.
The SAM Defender and SAM Revealer are the latest in a growing line of isotope identification technologies offered by Berkeley Nucleonics. Our Firmware update, Eagle A, increases operational capabilities for current market conditions. The new category F/W, represents food and water and shows the presence of radiation in light blue peaks. Shown here is our SAM 940 Revealer with 3.5% resolution LaBr detectors. GPS data is also available and many users are posting live data online for general public considerations.
The SAM 940 is a world-class isotope identifier. Our service and training programs are also coveted by a community of users with a variety of applications. Eagle-A is a reminder that Berkeley Nucleonics supports the changing needs of radiation measurements faster than anyone in the market, be it new medical isotopes, industrial isotopes or in this case, additional food and water screening , comments David Brown, BNC President.
